My first Whispering Pines package arrived! GO should hopefully arrive tomorrow. I can’t wait to try it. Can’t. Wait!

In the meantime, this tea is fantastic! It reminds me of Laoshan Black with the dark chocolate aroma/taste and the tea is very flavorful and rich. So glad I was able to try it as it will need to be a reorder for sure. I asked my husband if he wanted to partake. He sniffed the bag he gave me a thumbs up. I was hesitant to make a whole big pot if he didn’t like it because it isn’t the cheapest tea. He laughed and replied, “Enjoy it! Are you saving it for the Dutchess or something?” Lol, but he does have a point. I am always so inclined to horde tea that I really love and I need to stop. So I steeped a large teapot worth and was glad for it. I’d rather spend the moola to have a lot of a tea that I really love than a lot of teas that I am meh about.

I will post a more in-depth review when I have some time later this week, but it is rich, dark chocolately, and malty with a touch of sweet fruitiness. Yum! I tried it straight and with agave added and it is quite good both ways- the flavor profile is more notably chocolate with nothing added and the cherry profile makes more of an appearance with sweetener. Great tea!

Flavors: Cherry, Dark Chocolate, Malt

Preparation

I always prefer resteeping multiple small pots worth instead of making one big pot of something :) You can get at least 3 good steeps out of this one, too!

Oh, that’s good to know! I am not the best at resteeping normally (don’t tell the avid resteepers), but I will try it next time. :)

Hehe, MzPriss and TheTeaFairy never resteeped until they tried some of my teas that resteep AMAZINGLY (Golden Orchid, Cocoa Amore, Port, pretty much the entire Vanilla Dreams Collection). I even find that I like the second infusion more quite often!
